    Fartbook. Just because someone stumbles into a business idea and becomes a CEO doesn't mean he can lead a company.

    MAU is BS, there is no way to accurately track it, if you ever were a user of FB your still counted as an active user.


    Now, you have a conflict between mau's, and ocf that should not be there.


    The best thing to do here is unwind this whole thing before somebody gets hurt.


    Fortunately for MZ, he didn't create FB, the GOV'T DID, according to the hric.


    So, it's their problem... LOL!!!

    Does anyone know off the top of their head when the lockup for insiders expires? I thought i remember reading it was shorter than a standard IPO, but I may be mistaken. I'd imagine thats the next catalyst for the stock to head lower.

    2nd the MAU numbers and would like to add that many people have two accounts. One for work and one for friends.


    I would like to know uniques rather than MAU's.

    just is not growing fast enough to justify the PE


    this is a 10 to 15 dollar stock until they can pick up the growth

    FB has already experienced their halcyon growth days. They waited way too long for their IPO and were lucky to get the price they did at that moment.

    I have to conclude that monetization and profits WILL occur - and the stock price will rise sharply eventually, or.... this IPO will go down as the biggest screwup in the history of any exchange!

    The business not succeeding isnt the exchanges fault, they're just the market place for the buyers and sellers.

    There will be some price point say 3$ - 5$, where GOOG will pick up FB.

    that's my view. the people who got caught up in this thing will take historic losses. "nothing that can't be written off" of course.
